Grumbles from the shop #6: The world is her litterbox

05-10-2009 09:11 PM by dennis mitchell | 20 comments »

A few years back my cat decided to get untrained. She started crapping behind the furniture. It was pretty strange. The solution was to move her to the shop where she has access to plenty of sawdust. So I get to share my shop with cat crap. Wonderful. This cat loves to ride on my shoulders. She will sit up there while I’m cutting 4X8’s or at the miter saw and just purr away. She will also stand right under your feet or try to climb your legs while at the saw! This picture is her s...

This side has two special pullouts on the left and right cabinet and has 2 huge pullouts in the center section. T...

random #16: What LA does with its wood (and lawn trimmings)

05-10-2009 10:24 AM by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

I’ve been trying to figure this out for a bit, and last weekend I cracked the case. Where do the logs and trees the tree trimmers cut down, and the stuff in the green waste recycling bins go? I tooled around Google Maps, searching for dumps and landfills, and found things like this that just didn’t seem to fit the bill. Finally I found this PDF file. It includes 20 pages, most with photos of everything that goes on, with figures on how much of each type of green waste is hauled in...

Videos may be coming

05-10-2009 06:29 AM by Woodshopfreak | 3 comments »

I wanted to let people know that after a long period off silence from my video podcast, I want to say that the shows may be coming back. Not sure yet, but we will have to see. I want to know what you would like to see from a show in the terms of projects, or use of tools/skills. Thanks. Any opinion is greatly appreciated.

Two weeks ago I reported that I was 65. Well, I didn’t have a picture of the 2×12 my wife gave me. It’s worth looking at. Lee

Shot Glass Display Cabinet #3: Time to finish...

05-10-2009 04:14 AM by scopemonkey | 1 comment »

This update’s for you Mary K. The woodworking is done and the hardware is in place. I used some “no mortise” hinges I got from our local Woodcraft store. The Woodcraft salesman talked me into them but I don’t think I will use them again. Although there’s no chopping out a mortise, they do require a fair amount of tweaking to get the up/down and left/right alignment just right. I would rather chop out mortises. My glass will be ready next week so now it is t...

sweet find/new addition: ryobi AP1300 planer

05-09-2009 09:16 PM by AaronK | 3 comments »

just found this on craigslist for $125. seems to be in flawless condition. im surprised and happy to find it instead instead of the 1301 model i’ve been reading so much hate about! anyway, it’s a very welcome addition to my meager collection and will help dramatically I’m sure. i dont think i need to write a review about it, since so many abound and it’s not a new machine. but my initial impression of it is that it’s about as solid as it can be for its size. t...

Free BowlSaw to four woodturners with no obligation...

05-09-2009 08:13 PM by Steuss | 6 comments »

My welder done me wrong and made several 6” BowlSaws undersize. They would be perfect for those who like to work miniatures. I’m giving them (4) to the first four woodturners who contact me. I’m saving one for myself for special projects. All I ask is that the requester give me an honest answer as to what his evaluation is of the tool. Contact me at or check I’m having fun with the tool and learn new things about wood every day. Dick
